'Constantine' Director Wants To Direct A Black Widow Film | black widow

Have you ever wanted to see a female-led superhero film? Well, you may get your chance. Director Neil Marshall, known for directing Game of Thrones and NBC's Constantine, wants a shot at a Black Widow film. If made, this would be Marvel's second female-led movie. While talking to Vanity Fair, Marshall explains,
"I think I'd like to do a big movie with a strong female lead, whether or not she would be a superhero, I'm more interested in characters like Scarlett Johansson in Lucy. I'm less interested in people with superpowers because I can't identify with them. Very rarely do they get killed off, and when they do get killed off, chances are they're going to be back...somehow. Yes, I'd love to do a big splashy movie with a great female lead, but it has to be someone I can believe in."
Regarding Black Widow, it was the interviewer, not Marshall, who brought the subject up as he referenced Lucy and Johansson.
"I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That's perfect. I would love to do that. That character is really interesting, she doesn't have any superpowers, she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-K.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah."
Although the Black Widow has become a prominent character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and will be developed in the upcoming Avengers sequel, people still wonder when there be a standalone heroine film once again. The answer to that is still unknown... for now. Would you like to see a female superhero movie, Popwrappers? If so, who? Leave your comments below!
